(NEXSTAR) – Are you the winner? Saturday’s Powerball jackpot is a whopping $1.6 billion – the largest jackpot in US lottery history. Winning numbers for the jackpot are: 69, 53, 45, 56 and 28. The Powerball number is 20. PowerPlay multiplier is 3X.

If no ticket matches all six numbers above, the Powerball jackpot will approach and possibly surpass the record $1.586 billion won by three Powerball players in 2016, which is also the largest lottery win the nation has ever seen.

Jackpot winners can receive their winnings as an annuity (30 staggered payments over 29 years) or as a lump sum. According to Powerball, the jackpot has a cash value of $596.7 million. Under the retirement plan, winners receive an immediate payment and then 29 annual payments that increase by 5% each year, eventually reaching the $1.2 billion total.

Officials are urging anyone lucky enough to win a Powerball jackpot to consult a financial advisor — while keeping that prized ticket safe — before showing up at a lottery office for an oversized check.
